About The Higher Certificate in Project Management
Project Management has emerged in the business world as one of the most popular career fields in the twenty-first century. It encompasses and touches every facet and business unit of the organisation from human resources to finance and information technology. Having a project management qualification enables individuals to easily switch careers.
